The Trust has moved into one of the most iconic buildings in Washington, D.C. -- the Watergate Office Building! This famous address is one of the city’s finest examples of modern architecture -- and now, is home to the National Trust.

The Watergate gets its name from the terraced steps west of the Lincoln Memorial that lead down to the Potomac River. The buildings were designed by Italian architect Luigi Moretti; the landscapes, by noted DC-based landscape architect Boris Timchenko. When the first building in the complex opened in 1965, it was called "opulent," "sweeping," and "evocative."

We at the National Trust are proud to be part of this architectural legacy, as we work to save places from our new historic headquarters.
